Montmartre #2

Montmartre #2, 18" x 24"

I have made a companion piece to Montmartre #1, using a similar subdued palette. Again, this was based on a photo I took while travelling this fall. All the fabrics are hand-dyed. I am especially pleased with the sky fabric, made with low immersion dyeing. I posted about this process a couple of weeks ago. I find it interesting that when working with a subdued palette like this, the hints of hue in the neutrals become so evident. What would have been dismissed as "grey" becomes a very subtle blue-green, and what first looks like "beige" is now seen as a green-gold.

Your sky really adds life to the piece and brings the eye back around
